The power of deep aeration for glamping

Terrain Aeration Terralift for glamping

Lack of rainfall over long periods followed by heavy downpours on compacted grass can leave standing water, rendering large areas unusable. Glamping venues, amenity areas, sports pitches, parks and golf courses are all victims of compaction and panning. The action of foot traffic, erection and use of tents and pods, use of machines and even normal aeration can result in poor drainage, depriving grass roots of oxygen and nutrients. Terrain Aeration has been providing a long-term solution to this for over twenty-five years and has wide experience in treating glamping venues such as Warwick Castle and amenities like London’s Hyde Park after the Winter Wonderland event.

Play equipment: Why kids go Wild for natural playscapes

A Wild Hart-designed garden with play equipment

Nick Hart from Wild Hart playscapes and cabins chats to editor Victoria Galligan about his inspiration for producing natural play equipment, the ethos behind his company and an exciting project with the Duchess of Cambridge…

The playscapes produced by Wild Hart are anything but run-of-the-mill swings and slides which you see at many playgrounds. There’s a common theme: they’re made from natural materials, often wood or rope, and look like they’ve come straight from a desert island, or a pirate ship. And there’s a reason for that, says Nick.

“As a kid, I loved the freedom of being able to walk in the woods and connect with nature. I suppose that’s where it all started for me.”

Mudcontrol – the revolutionary new instant, porous, easily removable hard- standing solution

Mudcontrol slabs

Mudcontrol INB slabs have only been on the market in the U.K. for about 18 months, but have already established a rock solid reputation. Made of 100% recycled plastic, they are inert, stable and environmentally friendly, and covered by a 20 year manufacturer’s warranty. 

Our slabs are inflexible and have solid tabs along the sides which interlink with the gaps on adjacent slabs to create an instant all-in-one sub-base and base, which will follow the contours of the ground and stay on top of the mud. 

The slabs are rock hard and, being certified to over 60 tonnes, strong enough for any foot, hoof or vehicle traffic. 

Stay safe this summer with anti-slip decking

Decking has natural appeal, is perfect for entertaining and relaxing on and is relatively low-maintenance. 

But there is one major drawback – it can become very slippery when wet.

And with the Great British weather as unpredictable as ever, caravan industry supplier WJ Group has the perfect solution to help holidaymakers enjoy the great outdoors safely.

The timber and metal components business – a fully-approved member of National Caravan Council (NCC) – has designed and made an anti-slip product for decking.

DeckWright anti-slip inserts can be retrofitted to almost any grooved decking quickly and easily using standard tools.

They come with a five-year warranty and there’s even an online calculator which will help you work out how much you need.

Understanding your Chassis

Understanding your Chassis

After a long winter and few months away, the last thing you will want to do after stepping foot back inside your caravan for the first time is go back outside and check the chassis. Although it’s not necessarily the first thing static caravan and park home owners think about at the start of the season, chassis inspection and maintenance should feature highly on the list of priorities. This is particularly true for those whose chassis are only painted steel, part- or pre-galvanised.  Owners who have a fully galvanised foundation, can take a more relaxed approach.
